4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A: pours a beautiful deep rose read with a finger of transient pink foam and brilliant clarity. No lace. Beautiful beer. Normally, some of the characteristics here would take away, but this appearance is simply stunning. Great looking beer.
S: Mmmmm. Spicy blend of yeast, dry sour, farm funk (the most Iíve smelled in a cantillon), lots of lacto. Nice.
T: Dry, puckering, tart and fruity. The fruit tone is really surprising provided the time in bottle. Plenty of signature Cantillon sour puckering flavors. Hints of white vinegar. Really nice.
M: Thin, moderately low carbonation allows for the tannic dryness in the beer to shine. Make me water and want more.
O: I really, really enjoyed this beer, but I think I might prefer some of the others from the crew there in Brussels to this one.
Serving type: bottle

Burgundy pour, some white fizzy head, looks almost still once itís gone. Raunchy aroma, lots of funk, a bit of grape. Taste is lemon funk, sour grapes,lots of sour on the finish.

On tap at CBC, Clapham. Pours a cherry colour with a pinkish head. Aroma is lovely - wine, cherry, custard. a little raspberry. Light body, full carbonation. Dry and pleasantly sour with grapes, a little woodiness, lemon, strawberry... and more besides. Lovely.

Bottle. Pours slight haze bold ruby, dark red with thin reddish white head. Smell is merlot grapes, citrus, light brett funk. Taste is sour grape, fresh red berries, cherry, strawberries juice, merlot tannins, a little acidic, slight dry wood towards the end. Would love to try again with more age. Delicious.

Notes from backlog. Was my second Cantillon, and I guess I had hyped it a bit too much. Very tart, but the grapes did not affect it to the degree I had expected.

Red. Aroma is subtle funk and grape. Taste is oak, grape, tartness, mild sweetness; lots going on. Overall, one of the best fruit lambics Iíve yet had.

Bottle share thanks to droofus. Slightly tart nose with tons of fruitiness.. Not very tannin like. This is awesome. Almost like a very tart grape soda. Perfect balance of grape and sourness.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a deep ruby color. Big barnyardy, horse blanket, funky sour aroma. Big funky flavor as well, barnyard gueuze character. Fruity flavor, grape and sour cherry like in the finish. Big sourness throughout but balances well with fruity character.
